I have developed a custom timer job for SharePoint 2013 in visual studio 2012 which sends email notifications. The issue is that it works fine on development server.
I have followed the following steps to debug it on the development server
1.) Deploy the timer job on respective site.
2.) Restart the timer service in
3.) Then is do attach to process OWSTIMER in visual studio.
4.) And finally Go to SharePoint 2013 Central administration->Monitoring->Review Job Definition and click on the respective timer job and say run now.
After doing this the breakpoint is hit in visual studio at the
Execute() method. So in the development server it is running.
Now on the production server I cannot debug using visual studio so I have deployed the packaged solution(.wsp).
I can see the feature is activated in Site Collection Administration-> Site Collection Features.
Now on the production server I follow the following steps
1.)Restart the timer service in
2.)And finally Go to SharePoint 2013 Central administration->Monitoring->Review Job
Further to test whether the timer job is working on production server or not I had used
PortalLog.LogString("Flow test1"); at the start of the
Execute() method. Now this runs on the development server and I see the message in the SharePoint logs but on the production server I can't see "Flow Test1" in the logs after I click Run Now in central admin.
Can anyone suggest what is the issue and a possible solution?
